  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line your baking sheet (15x12) with parchment paper.
  2. Sift together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt and set it aside.

  3. In your stand mixer cream together the sugar and butter until lightened in color, about a minute then add in the eggs one at a time until fully incorporated before adding in the flour until just mixed in.

  4. Pour the mixture onto your parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cake is done to the touch (your finger doesn't leave an indentation) then remove from the oven and while it is still warm roll the parchment paper into a roll and let cool in the roll shape.

  5. Unroll carefully and spread the whipped cream over the cake then re-roll, trim the edges (this is the chef's reward ;) ) and serve.
